The Dangers of Looking Backward While Walking Forward

It’s easy to miss what lies ahead

If you’re always looking behind you instead

Yeah, you may be walking forward but by looking backward you’ll never know

All of the potential you have and how you can grow

It’s important to take risks once in awhile

Even if you fail miserably, taking those risks are still worthwhile

Because you’re getting closer to your destination

And by standing back up, you’re building a strong reputation

Besides, not looking where you’re going is unsafe

You may trip and fall into your own grave
